    We have an ADR for the day we arrive at Ohana for 530pm. Will we still be able to use our meal plan if we haven't been able to physically check into our resort yet if the room isn't ready by the time we leave for our dinner reservation?

    Greetings Amanda, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You’re a Guest after my heart with selecting ‘Ohana for dinner, as it’s my family’s favorite place to dine!

    Rest assured, most Disney Resort Hotel rooms are available by 3 p.m., and Cast Members (Disney staff) make every effort to accommodate early arrivals, but please keep in mind early check-in is not guaranteed.
    May I suggest free online registration with My Disney Experience, where you can customize every detail of your vacation, including Online Check-In 60 days in advance of your arrival. Online Check-In is where all information normally collected during standard check-in at the Front Desk is completed by you in the comfort of your home.

    Upon arrival at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, head to the Online Check-In Desk or you’ll be approached by a Cast Member asking if you’ve completed Online Check-In. You’ll be given your Welcome Folder and MagicBands (if you haven’t already received them in the mail- special conditions apply for non-U.S. citizens).

    This process makes your check-in smooth, easy and fast, allowing you to head straight to the fun, and use your Disney Dining Plan at ‘Ohana at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. I guarantee you’ll have a delicious meal, entertainment, the best view of Cinderella Castle and Seven Seas Lagoon! Don't forget to leave room for 'Ohana Bread Pudding a la mode with Bananas-Caramel Sauce.

    I am so excited for you, Amanda and hope that this information helps you out. Please feel free to ask us any other questions in the near future.

    Have a positively magical experience!
